Feelings… Whoa, Whoa, Whoa

Jet and Bodi were together so often that they were simply referred to collectively as Jettinbo, because even if only one of them was being addressed the other would still be interested in the matter at hand, in fact even moreso if there was a reason it didn’t involve them. Harvey had futilely waited weeks to be alone with Jet to ask a question, before realizing he would have to muster up the courage to ask her out in front of Bodi. He had assumed they never dated because neither were interested, but a fear crawled into the corner of his mind and made a nest. He suddenly wondered if either or both were interested, but suffered the same affliction as Harvey: lack of courage. The thought just rolled around in his mind, snowballing, consuming his mental space whenever he was around them until one night at a party he just blurted “Why aren’t you two dating?!” This would have been a reasonable question, if it had been uttered twenty decibels lower.
